Course AB10/3 - Garlogie
A popular out and back time trial course some ten miles west of Aberdeen. Not regarded as a fast course, however 21 minute tens are not unheard of from some of the local fast guys.
 
The favoured strip is at Garlogie Hall, at the far end of the village from the start - allow 5 minutes to get to the start. The large lay-by opposite the start is also used, most frequently for confined events but occasionally and disappointingly for open events.
